Kacey's newest video "Fine" was uploaded yesterday
Pageant Material has an 80 on Metacritic!
Loving the album so far, although I have yet to actually sit down and listen to it in full. Biscuits has REALLY grown on me, even though it clearly tried to mimic the success of FYA. I am curious to see what her team decides to promote as the next single...
What can I say about this album that hasn't bee already said??? Seriously, great album all around. I really don't have any favorites yet. They might as well give her country album at the Grammys right now.
Have been listening to the album some more and I think that Good Ol' Boys Club is my favorite so far.
Good Ole Boys Club is brilliant. It sooooo reminds me of Carrie's troubles with the CMAS and ACMs, etc. Perfect, Kacey.
Overall, I really do like the album alot. Again, she has a sarcastic wit that I find refreshing, just like her first album.
My only criticism is that it feels like she did not "grow" or stretch much on this album. It is pretty much the same exact style as the first album, and the music/melodies are rather mediocre.
I give her an A+ for her audacity though, and the lyrics are strong. Her voice is pleasant to listen to and I do enjoy the album alot.
I just think her first album set the bar so high that I had really high expectations for this one. So perhaps that is why the music and melodies seem a bit boring-- kind of like a one trick pony, all the same "sound." But the lyrics are strong and her spirit shines through. I can see why critics love it. I just wish she would change up the music/melodies a bit to avoid the same basic "sound" throughout.
Or is that intentional? Is she trying for a campy singalong "sound" that does not change much throughout, to focus more on the lyrics and message and less on the music/beat/melody?

I like Same Trailer Different Park. I know it won Grammy. In my opinion Pageant Material as a whole cd is slightly better. I just thinks she has grown as writer with her songs like Late To Party, Dime Store Cowgirl, High Time, This Town, Somebody To Love ect. Anyone else agree?
Have you guys heard Kacey's remix of waves with Miguel? It's incredible. I loved Same Trailer, Different Park but haven't really dove into Pageant Material. I may have to though, this song has reminded me how much I really like Kacey.
Here are some performances of Kacey that I wanted to post. They are couple of my favorite songs
Is Kacey working on a new album? Does anyone know?
